As American Idol comes to us live tonight there are some of the contestants (Scotty McCreery, Pia Toscano, Stefano Langone) who will have some specific challenges to face. It is Rock and Roll Hall of Fame week on the show. Contestants can pick between the over 650 different songs of the Hall’s inductees. For some contestants rock and roll will be great; others might struggle. Here are my picks for the contestants who might struggle this week.

Pia Toscano – I know it is almost sacrilege to say she might be anything short of amazing, but so far we haven’t seen her do many up-tempo numbers and this week she has very few options but to do something faster than her normal ballad. There are some good songs she could choose like Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” that will show off her voice, but this might be a week where she is a little bit unsteady.

Normally I wouldn’t put Scotty McCreery in anything that mentioned the bottom three, but with it being Rock and Roll Hall of Fame week on American Idol he might have a little trouble finding a song that fits his old school country style. Scotty could take just about any song and turn it into a country jam, but if he did it would be a risk and he could have some issues.  I think he will play it safe and maybe go with a Johnny Cash song. If he does that there is little doubt he will do well, but if Scotty McCreery tries to go outside of his comfort zone it might not work out so well for him.

Another person who may have some problems this week is Stefano Langone. Last week he did Stevie Wonder and for the first time in a while avoided the bottom three. For him song choice will be critical. Of the remaining contestants his voice is probably among the weakest so if he goes for something big it could come odd very badly. This might be a week where he plays defense and does something safe while hoping other people screw up.

American Idol comes to you live tonight at 8|7c on FOX. Tune in tonight to see how Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery and Stefano Langone fare and if they are able to dig deep and find their inner rock star.
